Tabs

React, Components, State, Children

Renders a tabbed menu and view component.

  • Define a Tabs component. Use the useState() hook to initialize the value of the bindIndex state variable to defaultIndex.
  • Define a TabItem component and filter children passed to the Tabs component to remove unnecessary nodes except for TabItem by identifying the function's name.
  • Define changeTab, which will be executed when clicking a <button> from the menu.
  • changeTab executes the passed callback, onTabClick, and updates bindIndex based on the clicked element.
  • Use Array.prototype.map() on the collected nodes to render the menu and view of the tabs.
  • Use the value of bindIndex to determine the active tab and apply the correct className.
.tab-menu > button {
  cursor: pointer;
  padding: 8px 16px;
  border: 0;
  border-bottom: 2px solid transparent;
  background: none;
}

.tab-menu > button.focus {
  border-bottom: 2px solid #007bef;
}

.tab-menu > button:hover {
  border-bottom: 2px solid #007bef;
}

.tab-content {
  display: none;
}

.tab-content.selected {
  display: block;
}
const TabItem = props => <div {...props} />;

const Tabs = ({ defaultIndex = 0, onTabClick, children }) => {
  const [bindIndex, setBindIndex] = React.useState(defaultIndex);
  const changeTab = newIndex => {
    if (typeof onTabClick === 'function') onTabClick(newIndex);
    setBindIndex(newIndex);
  };
  const items = children.filter(item => item.type.name === 'TabItem');

  return (
    <div className="wrapper">
      <div className="tab-menu">
        {items.map(({ props: { index, label } }) => (
          <button
            key={`tab-btn-${index}`}
            onClick={() => changeTab(index)}
            className={bindIndex === index ? 'focus' : ''}
          >
            {label}
          </button>
